A powerful anti-war piece of theatre, a brutal look at racism and a searing indictment of nationalism and religion. It is as current and topical as any original production premiering this year, and yet it is the 1972 Tony Award winner for Best Play. David Rabe’s Sticks and Bones kicks off Fun House Theatre and Film’s year long look at Politics Through the Proscenium,February 12-20 with Jeff Swearingen directing a cast of critically acclaimed young actors, ranging in age from 15-18, in this savage and complex satire. Be it the Syrian Refugee crisis, misconceptions about Islam, the treatment of current military veterans or piousness in conservative Christianity, the relevance of this 45 year old work, presented in 2016 by a new generation of actors and for a new generation of audience members, brutally exemplifies the concept that those who are unaware of their history are simply doomed to repeat it. Recommended for audiences ages 16 and up.
